I reckon turntables are great  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Have always thought I would put one in when I have a place that needs it. But the urban myth of having to wait for it to complete the revolution has also put me off a bit.

Does anyone have one?

Toddler killed in driveway accident

Posted 47 minutes ago

A two-year-old girl has died after she was run over in the driveway of her parents' house south of Perth

The toddler was taken by ambulance to Rockingham Hospital but died a short time later.

The incident happened shortly before 2:00pm (AWST).

Police say the girl's father was driving the car that struck her. The incident is not believed to be suspicious.

It's hard to imagine anything worse.

Life destroying and you would feel worse, if possible, because everyone has been warned again and again..............just tragic.

the recent one from Sorrento was terrible. The poor mum somehow hit the throttle not brake and drove FORWARDS into her own father and her own son...

I think the father is ok, but the son didn't make it.

A reversing accident perhaps has the slightly less soul destructive quality in that it is a "blind spot" accident, but the forwards one is just plain catastrophically clumsy.

Drive a manual car, and "wrong pedal" chances are significantly reduced, as even if you do hit the throttle by mistake, it's most likely you've got the clutch pressed if you intended to stop.

I think in the case of wrong footing it's either old people or women with ridiculous shoes.
